Effective health and safety programs focus on protecting workers from injury or illness and events that can disrupt production. By lowering the amount of these events, productivity can proceed unimpeded keeping your operations on track.
OSHA/Industrial Hygiene exposure surveys – Workplaces present a variety of environmental conditions that impact people and property. We can assess, document and help mitigate workplace problems that cause illness or injury by providing: OSHA compliance assistance, workplace exposure assessment (dust, chemicals), Ventilation testing and diagnostics, noise surveys, Respirator fit testing, Occupational illness investigation and evaluation and Occupational illness investigation and evaluation.
Respiratory protection/fit testing – qualitative & quantitative – There are two types of fit tests: qualitative and quantitative. Per OSHA, qualitative fit testing, mostly for half mask respirators, is a pass/fail test method that uses your sense of taste or smell, or your reaction to an irritant in order to detect leaks in your respirator, but not the amount. Quantitative fit testing, mostly for full mask respirators, does not use taste or smell but does use a machine to detect the amount of leakage in your mask.
Workplace risk assessments and chemical exposure – A chemical risk assessment involves the identification of chemical hazards in the workplace and recommends controls to reduce exposure and minimize harm to workers. It assesses the transport, storage, and handling of hazardous substances. Understanding how much exposure to a hazard poses health risks to workers is important to appropriately eliminate, control, and reduce those risks.
Right-to-know surveys, reporting & training – In NJ, the “Right to Know” law tells employers that employees have the right to know and be provide with information pertaining to the types of hazardous substances at their workplace.
Asbestos awareness training – Provides information, instruction and training for workers who perform duties in areas where asbestos may be present. It makes them aware of what asbestos is, how to identify it and not to disturb it while doing their job.
Bloodbourne pathogenes training – bloodborne pathogens training program is designed to help learners keep themselves, their coworkers, their friends, and their family safe from exposure to bloodborne pathogens. It will help learners understand the basics of bloodborne pathogens, how to protect themselves, and what to do in the event of an exposure, including the decontamination process.
Personal Protective Equipment – We can conduct evaluations of equipment and processes to determine the required PPE for employees working in and around specific equipment and/or processes. We will recommend appropriate PPE for affected personnel.
Lead Awareness – Following OSHA standards you will learn what is required to prevent exposure to lead in the construction industry. This includes an overview of lead paint, hazards and OSHA regulations.
